young leader kim jong-un domestically. >> absolutely. they have been trying since 1998 to launch a long-range missile and they failed in the previous four attempts. they succeeded in this. it's not a rocket that can deliver a major warhead. there are marriajor hurdles to >> they have done in north korea where a lot of people are starving what south korea has been unable to do. >> by choice, actually. >> they haven't launched a satellite into orbit. >> south korea has not. this will undoubtedly spur competition with south korea. you'll see that. you'll probably see south korea respond with more batteries and japan will probably already do that. you have heard that we need to spend more. we spend $10 million a year already on a missile system. it has international ramifications that are going to destabilize. this is why the security council is condemning the move. >> so how much of a real threat to the united states, whether hawaii or the west coast, is this? >> we are not threatened any more today than we were yesterday. let me give you one example. iran put a satellite in orbit in 2009.
, whatever you want to say the death of kim jong-il last december. that they are doing this test to further their own national security interests and, one of those interests is to have a robust, i would argue, nuclear deterrent against the united states. now, i would also add that they are more than willing to negotiate about that. i don't think it's inevitable that north korea would have nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles aimed at the united states but i do think they intend to try to accomplish that and this launch is a step, probably an early step, in terms of the developing that capability. jon: well the u.n., the u.s., seoul, said if you launch the missile it will be very provocative act. it could bring on new sanctions. i thought we were sanctioning everything we could in north korea. are we not? >> no, no. again a lot of new techniques have been applied developing new sanctions to iran. one of the methods to apply u.n. and e.u. sanctions of iran was to study the economy of iran. look for have anotherabilities in their financial system and their trade system and that kind of approach h
. and we're just five days away from when kim jong-il passed away. so there's a symbolic importance for them doing this now. so this is the furthest they've gotten. so we have to keep an eye the closer they get. they have clearly made progress. >>> in other news this morning, and to capitol hill, the slow progress being made toward a fiscal compromise in this country that would avoid tax hikes for all of us come next year. president obama and house speaker john boehner spoke about the stalemate by phone last night. mr. obama has cut his demand for new revenue from tax hikes but continues to insist on higher taxes for the wealthy. boehner's counter offer was almost what republicans have been offering all along, $800 billion in tax revenues, none of them generated by higher tax rates. that stalemate is causing irritation for the senate female members. starting in january, there will be 20 of them, a new record. and they told diane sawyer if they were in charge, well, a deal would already be done. >> what i find is with all due deference to our male colleagues that women's styles tend
a factor in this delay. i'm told no, kim jong un is the new young leader there. he's marking the first anniversary of the death of his father kim jong-il. we think according to the experts they will go forward with this and we think that whatever happens, successor failure, it's going to be declared a success, bill. bill: thanks, greg. greg palkot will be declared a success on the inside of that country, thanks in london. martha: a lot of politics at play as greg says, that is why this rocket launch is so controversial. the u.s. and most of the world believes that north korea is working on a ballistic missile that would be capable of hitting america. the rogue nation has conducted four tests of long range missiles since 1998 all of the tests as greg was just saying have landed in the water, they all failed. as we are saying that does not mean that they have stopped trying. bill: and they will try again. also overseas, hillary clinton forced to delay a trip aimed at providing more support to the opposition in syria. clinton reportedly has a so many abstomach virus. she will take part wi

the fireworks and sure enough, they had great timing there in north korea. kim jong-un probably did this to honor his father whose death is this coming when i read the white house statement, i read, oh, wait, didn't i write this in 2006, because it's basically the same language that america has been use not guilty its foreign policy with north korea for years. >> brian: that rocket is just the technology from the '60s, the soviet era '60s, just a little juiced up. >> for us, looking at it, it is a concern because if they do get better technology and if they're rockets reach one of our allies or even all the way across the pacific to us, that obviously is a major problem. but this looks different from inside north korea with state television. this is a big deal to them. it means a lot. >> gretchen: we saw them celebrating. something that wasn't celebrated was the mob action that was going on in michigan yesterday with these protests about the state becoming a right to work state and a lot of people who support the unions were against this. it was interesting because president obama w
